leukemia plan update:
i have been out of the hospital for my second round of chemo for 5 days now. as expected, on this exact day my white blood cells and neutrophils ( which make me highly susceptible to infections and germs) are bottomed out. Hopefully i can avoid a fever which would require another hospital stay.
when my counts recover ( probably by next week) and I am feeling good again, they will schedule a biopsy. the results will be sent to Seattle where they can look at the molecular status of my bone marrow. If there is ANY trace of Leukemia at that point they will start the transplant process. If it’s clear, they will do 2 more rounds of chemo and call it a day ( hopefully). So, in a nutshell that’s the plan, but we all know we are not in control so they can always change. I hold things loosely and trust God for the results.
